Tryptophan measurement has been applied to the detection of tryptophan in water and is becoming increasingly recognised as a valuable water quality parameter in its own right. Tryptophan is an essential amino acid in the human diet and is the main component of protein fluorescence. It is associated with microbial activity and tryptophan measurement has been applied to sewage and faecal contamination of waste waters, including: agricultural runoff, effluent from waste water treatment, and contamination of processed waters.
